Gee, I had forgotten about this video. In 1986 some of the biggest names in Black Music united to help in the effort to get Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s. birthday declared a national holiday. King’s youngest son Dexter Scott King spearheaded the collaboration of what would become The King Dream Chorus and Holiday Crew.

Vocalists: El DeBarge, Whitney Houston, Stephanie Mills, Stacy Lattisaw, Lisa Lisa with Full Force, Teena Marie, Menudo, New Edition and James “J.T.” Taylor were joined by some of rap’s finest, Kurtis Blow, The Fat Boys, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Run–D.M.C. and Whodini.

  1. I’m finally getting the chance to review all the work and genius you put into your blogs. I’d forgotten about this video as well. In your research for this blog did you come across how much air time the video received? I can’t recall ever seeing all the children at the end. I’m reposting this one as well.
